8 items that highlight the graphic pop lettering trend

Graphic pop lettering has been appearing on recent runway collections, from Anya Hindmarch to Moschino. LESLIE KAY LIM picks eight items that highlight the trend

1. Sticker Bag

  

US$2,062 (S$2,800), from Anya Hindmarch at www.net-a-porter.com

PHOTOS: ANYA HINDMARCH, ASOS, BERSHKA, KENZO, MOSCHINO, NET-A-PORTER, UNIQLO, ZALORA This bag is our childhood sticker dream come true. The colourful explosion of images on the flap is in total contrast to the bag's ladylike and classic shape, which makes it an instant head-turner. 

2. Graphic T-Shirt 

 

$24.90, from Uniqlo at www.uniqlo.com/sg

PHOTOS: ANYA HINDMARCH, ASOS, BERSHKA, KENZO, MOSCHINO, NET-A-PORTER, UNIQLO, ZALORA The multicolour block letters on this minimalist band T-shirt is reminiscent of childhood building blocks. Coldplay fan or not, this T-shirt makes a fun statement. 

3. Yellow Clutch

 

$400, from Kenzo at 01-22 The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands

PHOTOS: ANYA HINDMARCH, ASOS, BERSHKA, KENZO, MOSCHINO, NET-A-PORTER, UNIQLO, ZALORA Oui? Non? This bright flat clutch features the French words for yes and no on either side, so you can send the right message depending on the mood of the day. 

4. Patch Set

 

$9.90, from Bershka at 01-58 VivoCity

PHOTOS: ANYA HINDMARCH, ASOS, BERSHKA, KENZO, MOSCHINO, NET-A-PORTER, UNIQLO, ZALORA Do you remember collecting patches as a scout or guide when you were younger? This set of four - lips, a heart, a lipstick and the word COOL - could be modern-day style merit badges. 

5. Speech Bubble Clutch

 

US$490 (S$670), from Sophia Webster at www.net-a-porter.com

PHOTOS: ANYA HINDMARCH, ASOS, BERSHKA, KENZO, MOSCHINO, NET-A-PORTER, UNIQLO, ZALORA Wild thing, da dum dum... you make my heart sing. This funky speech bubble clutch is full of whimsical charm and statement-making potential. 

6. Long Sleeved T-Shirt

 

$34.90, from Catwalk88 at www.zalora.sg

PHOTOS: ANYA HINDMARCH, ASOS, BERSHKA, KENZO, MOSCHINO, NET-A-PORTER, UNIQLO, ZALORA The bright red colour and the dotted background of the pop art on this T-shirt give off a fun vibe in the vein of American pop artist Roy Lichtenstein, who took his inspiration from classic comics. 

7. Bucket Bag

 

 

$1,800, from Moschino at 01-04 Paragon

PHOTOS: ANYA HINDMARCH, ASOS, BERSHKA, KENZO, MOSCHINO, NET-A-PORTER, UNIQLO, ZALORA The bucket bag, the carryall shape du jour, gets accessorised with a rainbow keychain of letters. Expect a fun, jaunty jangle of sound to accompany your stylish walk. 

8. Flat Clutch

 

$39, from Asos at www.asos.com

PHOTOS: ANYA HINDMARCH, ASOS, BERSHKA, KENZO, MOSCHINO, NET-A-PORTER, UNIQLO, ZALORA Poor little match girl? Not anymore. This flat clutch features white script against a lovely blue and pink background. The simple matchstick illustration adds an old-fashioned feel.
